It’s that time of year again where the infamous Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show starts to take shape. As the days go by, we are closer and closer to hearing all the fabulous details of whats in store for this years runway extravaganza! It was rumoured that the show would take place in Shanghai, China after the lingerie giant opened a flagship store in in the city earlier this year. The opening of the flagship store will help satisfy the Chinese women’s “desire to keep up with the pace at the forefront of international fashion”. Victoria’s Secret later confirmed the location of Shanghai, China for this years show!

Parisian fashion house Balmain is partnering with Victoria’s Secret this year and will be sending Olivier Rousteing-designed lingerie down the runway. Not only will the pieces walk the runway, Balmain is also launching a capsule collection for Victoria’s Secret, which will be available to shop after the show airs on the 28th of November on CBS. 

As for who will wear the coveted, diamond encrusted million dollar bra? That honour goes to angel Lais Ribeiro. The 27-year-old has been working with Victoria’s Secret since 2010, but this year will join the ranks of the supermodels who’ve worn the very-special bejewelled bra before her when she hits the Fashion Show runway in Shanghai later this month.

The $2 Million ‘Champagne Nights’ Fantsay Bra weighs more than 600 carats and is handset with diamonds, yellow sapphires, and blue topaz. This chest of jewels took over 350 hours to make and was hand-set with almost 6,000 gemstones.

Her first big show was for Prada in September 2013. During her fittings, her hair was dyed bleach blonde. She liked it and decided to keep it that way, which has become her signature look. The same year, she debuted in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and advertised for American fashion house Moschino. Throughout her career she has walked for a bevy of top designers including Alexander McQueen, Anna Sui, Bottega Veneta, Balmain, Calvin Klein, Carolina Herrera, Chanel, Dior, H&M, Herve Leger, Max Mara, Michael Kors, Jeremy Scott, Oscar De La Renta, Tommy Hilfiger and Tom Ford, JUST TO NAME A FEW.

Devon has appeared in numerous Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows. She debuted in 2013 and has become a regular in the show each year since then! In 2015, Devon secured a ‘Fit Model’ position with the brand making her the reference model for the designers and artisans as they create the looks for the show. As a fit model, Devon has all the outfits constructed on her body, and they are later made custom couture to whichever model they assign the look too! So basically she gets to try on every look for each show! Dream job am I right?

Pictured above is Candice backstage at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show back in 2015. She was noticeably absent during the 2016 Show in Paris due to the arrival of her son! Candice has walked a total of 9 shows since her debut in 2007! The 28-year-old Victoria’s Secret model from South Africa appears in a black and white clip shared on the company’s Instagram account wearing white lace lingerie.

Earlier this month, the model turned heads when she attended the annual Met Gala in New York City in a full length sleeveless black gown looking amazing. It’s safe to say the Queen is back! As for her fellow angel that recently became a mother, Behati Prinsloo, she has yet to return to work but I’m sure it won’t be too much longer before we see her back!
